No cancellation - we regret we cannot accept cancellation of any order to buy paper prints because they are printed to your specification or to download digital prints because of the nature of digital files. This does not limit your rights in the case of faulty or damaged prints. Click here for more information on No Cancellation Rights.

You can buy colour prints and digital files of any of the images on the Collage web site. For black & white prints see 'Other Services'

Our digital files

The information below will help you determine which size of digital file to order.

Service A files are compressed for sending electronically so appear much smaller than the stated sizes. The files open to their original sizes in most image software.

Service B files can be ordered as either compressed or uncompressed files.

Service A
Maximum file size: 4.5MB
or 1536 x 1024 pixels
(will produce up to 5.25" x 3.5", 13cm x 8.67cm on the printed page)
A compressed file approx. 302KB jpeg will be sent via email.
An 'in between' size, for large web images and small print reproductions.
Service B
Maximum file size: 18MB
or 3072 x 2048 pixels
(will produce up to 10.25" x 7", 26cm x 17.34cm on the printed page)
Either an 18MB TIFF file on CD (posted) or a compressed jpeg sent via email.
Allows for up to single page A4 use.

RGB (or Red, Green, Blue) files should be ordered for use on web-pages or on-screen presentations.

CMYK (or Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black) files should be ordered for any colour reproductions for the printed page.

As with our print sales, you must seek permission before reproducing any digital file.

Our largest file size is for commercial and academic use only and you will be required to fill in an online 'Application to reproduce' form before ordering the file(s).
